The Boers got a reverse which may

night, it was not until a shell boomed
over the town into the cnmp that their
presence was discovered. Then the
shells came fat. The hill was posi

Chcesman, Theodore's brother, told of
his successful search for the murderer.
Theodore said at the death bed of his
brother that he would capture Bay or
spend n lifetime In the attempt, and
naturally he Is well pleased over the
outcome of his efforts.
Bay was betrayed by Mrs. Minnie
Chcesman, Frank's widow, and Hay's
paramour. After Cheesmnn's funeral
Mrs. Chcesmnn went to Nebraska City,
where she remained a short time, aud
then went to Victor, Cole, and after

is alleged, she soon married again, but
lived with her husband but a short
time During tho summer Theodore
Chcesman went" to Crlpplo Creek and
spent a month watching the actions of
Mrs. Chcesman. Before leaving he
hired n detective to look after her.
This man succeeded in ingratiating
hjtnself in tho fickle affections of the
woman, and In n moment of confidence
sho showed him a letter from Bay
signed "J. P. Keegan," the name as
binned by Bay. Tho letter was writ

P. Keegan" was traced to northwest
Iowa and arrested. Ho readily ac

Tuesday. Lon Mosley, a baker who
has been making his home in Fremont,
it is charged, took a fourteen-year-old
girl named Pearl Luke from her homo
at Norfolk and the enamoured pair
came to Fremont. The mother of the
girl was much exercised nnd bent a
telephone message to the chief of po
lice asking him to hold the pair until
she could arrive. The couple, very
penitent, btayed in the custody of the
police all night and in the morning
faced Mrs. Luke, who came In bright
and early. It appears that the mother
agreed with her daughter that fourteen
years Is a proper ago for a girl to wed
and merely wanted to see that tho mar
riage ceremony was properly cele
brated. After receiving the parental
blcbslng the nuptial knot was tied.
